Three creators, three choreographies, three inspirations
– 3Balet – Balet Bratislava’s.
Three Slovak choreographers created three new pieces for Balet Bratislava.
Bratislava, 25 January 2012 – International dance company Balet Bratislava brought together three contemporary Slovak choreographers – Šárka Ondrišová, Stanislava Vlčeková and Mário Radačovský to create a new production by the name of 3Balet. Trio of modern and original choreographic opuses was performed on 21 and 22 January 2012 at the Nová scéna Theatre in Bratislava, Slovakia. Another performance is planned for 27 January 2012.
With its second production, Balet Bratislava decided to give an opportunity to the local artists, who have been actively creating pieces for the local dance scene and each of them has a distinct choreographic style. Production 3Balet is a triple bill consisting of Rose by Stanislava Vlčeková, Frost by Šárka Ondrišová and Monos by Mário Radačovský. They are interpreted by the dancers of Balet Bratislava. Also cast in his own piece is company’s artistic director, Mário Radačovský.
Choreography Rose by Stanislava Vlčeková is inspired by the novel „In Search of Lost Time“ – timeless work of an important figure of French literature – Marcel Proust. Rose’s authors have focused on Proust’s formal legacy and his language which reveals the mysterious world of thoughts. Exquisite dancer, choreographer, member of the Debris Company and laureate of many awards, Stanislava Vlčeková, has cooperated on the piece with Jozef Vlk (music), Daniel Raček (choreographer’s assistant) and designers Tom Ciller (stage) and Katarína Holková (costume).
Author of the choreography Frost – Šárka Ondrišová was inspired by the topic of coldness and frost, which she used as a metaphor for the coldness in us, our relationships – coldness that can hurt us or bring up sadness. Šárka Ondrišová – who is a well known for establishing and managing the alternative theatre elledanse and for receiving several awards, notably the Prize of the Minister of Culture for year 2008 and several annual awards DOSKY worked on Frost with Boris Nahálka (co-author of the choreography), Peter Groll (music) and Zuzana Hudeková (costume).
Third piece is by Mário Radačovský. His choreography Monos focuses on the topic of human and self-reflection. “When we are looking for our own way, many times we get lost in the tangle of relationships, problems and obstacles and it is the solitude that can help us to find ourselves,” said Mário Radačovský about his new piece. His inspiration was well-known music by French pianist Yann Tiersen. Costumes for Monos were designed by Ľudmila Várossová. Mário Radačovský is the artistic director of Balet Bratislava. As a dancer he has worked with many renowned choreographers. He, himself started to choreograph in 2002 and since then he has created more than ten shorter opuses and several full-length pieces.
First performance of 3Balet – work in progress – took place on 29 December 2011. Balet Bratislava presents its new production to the broad public on 21, 22 and 27 January 2012 at the Theatre Nová scéna in Bratislava, Slovakia.
